At 5000 Yonge Dental, we understand that working and keeping up with your dental appointments can be challenging. Here are some tips on staying healthy while busy!
Do you feel like you can't keep up with your dental appointments because of work or a conflicting schedule? We totally get it. Finding time to visit the dentist is one of the top reasons why people of all ages avoid booking appointments. Between work, family commitments, social events, and extracurricular activities, we all have a lot going on.
Caring for our bodies should be a top priority, but sometimes it is not. We believe nothing should stop you from getting the oral health you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy all year round.
Here are some easy and positive ways to stay healthy while working or busy:
1. Stay hydrated!
2. Check our office for extended hours! We have flexible appointments to meet the needs of all our patients’ schedules. Whether you need an early appointment, after 5 or weekend, our office will do our best to accommodate! We don’t want work to stand in the way of your health.
3. Establish good oral hygiene habits to help between appointments. Regular brushing and flossing are essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. The more dedicated you are with your oral hygiene, the better off you’ll be!
4. Pack yourself healthy snacks and food for lunch. Food and beverages, like coffee or soda, make a huge difference on your oral health. Things you can include in your lunch include grains, milk, cheese, raw vegetables, yogurt or fruit. Avoid acidic or sugary foods if you can’t brush your teeth afterwards!
5. Schedule time for you! Don’t let work take over your life – make time to ensure you have breaks, healthy food, activity, and the proper health care appointments. Time management is important.
